W.C.W. Wednesday Night Thunder and W.C.W. Worldwide tapings on site report (Taped on 2.1.00 in Binghamton, NY @Broome County Civic Center)(Thunder to air 2.2.00 and Worldwide to air 2.12.00)
Anyway after me and my friend Bob' HORRABLE experience in NEW YORK CITY for The W.W.F. Royal Rumble, when we returned to our rooms last Monday we vowed not to go to a wrestling event for like 6 months. Anyway last Wednesday morning I sent Bob the Thunder taping results anyway on last week's show "NATURE BOY" RIC FLAIR RETURNED TO W.C.W. Anyway Bob has been trying to see Flair sense he was in the 5th grade and EVERYSHOW that Flair was schedule to appear he NEVER SHOWS. So Seeing Flair was back in WCW Bob taught FOR SURE Flair would be at the Thunder tapings on 2/1/00 in Binghamton, anyway Bob was totally broke So I offered to buy us tickets and see how we could get there to see him. Anyway This girl on campus named LAURA PEARL let us borrow her car (Even though Everyone out there probably doesn't know her I would like to thank her a million times for letting us borrow her car, she is the sweetest girl I have ever met.) Anyway we continued our quest to be Like Mick Foley, driving over 20 hours in 1 week to see WRESTLING!
Anyway we got to the arena around 6:30 P.M., What a fuckin dump the Broome County Arena is for a bathroom it only has ONE FUCKIN CHEESY TOILET!!!!! Anyway gate opened at 6:45 p.m. W.C.W. Merchandise sucks ass, This is the first wrestling event I went to that I never bought a T-shirt or anything. (BTW this was my first W.C.W. event and Maybe My last!) They where giving out free samples of W.C.W. Nitro perfume, I took 2. We got to our seats which where really cool! We where like 3 rows up from the floor, not bad for 20 bucks. I saw Doug Delligher walking around on the floor and got a up close pic of him and an autograph. Penzer came out at 7:30 to hype the crowd. Flair was listed on the program BTW.
W.C.W. WORDLWDIE TAPINGS SET TO AIR 2/11-12/00
Match 1) Lash LeRourx/La Parka(w/ chair) vs. 2 EXCESS (Lenny Lane and Lodi): Short of a high flying match, A few missed spots, LeRourx got into it and it the end ran into each other which leads to 2EXCESS hitting a suplex splash pin on La Parka. After the match La Parka hit's lash with a chair to a big pop.

Match 2) SID VS. Mike Rotundo (Submission Match) FUCK THIS! I don't want to see SID wrestle once, not to mention 3 times in 1 night. Anyway Sid wins w/ Crippler CROSSFACE.

He SUCKS

After the match they hug and go to the back. DAMN THEY DIDN'T SING!
Hulk Hogan in Red and Yellow gets out of a White limo
Geng Int.'s Hogan and for some reason people where on their feet cheering this old fuck. Please don't cheer him, he well get an even bigger head thinking he can save W.C.W. if Thunder gets a .1 better rating he well say it's because of him. He is so lame! Anyway talks about writers in the back messing 'HIS SPORT" and making it a comedy and He's tired of it and he is getting together w/ Flair and Sting to change things. HE talks about Luger, Luger and LIZ (HOT) come out, A Luger/Hogan altercation takes place (when a fake STING distract lex), Hogan atomic drops Liz when she try's to hit him w/ the "bat" After that Hogan takes his 10 min bow as all these idiot fans cheer him.

Also during the match Ms. Hancock came out to take notes but Daphe chased her to the back.

After the camera's go off Sid walks to the back as dumb fans cheer him. WHY??
NO Ric Flair, we drove all that way for nothing! Sorry Bob, I feel so Sorry for him, He has gone to see this guy like 20 times and never shows. After the event we meant Mike Teany in the parking garage and got his autograph and asked him about Flair, He said he wasn't there at all tonight, I asked when worldwide wow play he said the weekend after this 1. He was pretty cool!
Anyway on the way home IT started to snow really bad, we pulled over at a Mobil gas station and slept in the freezing cold, I don't know how we didn't die, I just thank we made it home. All this for Thunder, I'm really pissed. Everyone write Flair and tell him what an ass he is. Last night made NYC look like nothing, but after that I ain't going anywhere for a long time, like on 3/27/00
When I go to see
And maybe Thunder on 4/26/00, Maybe, After this show I don't know. Anyway sorry for the spelling errors I'm writing this w/ a cold, Probably frost bitten feet and 2 hours of sleep.
Pleas everyone look for on tv:My signs where:
David sent me one more email after I put this up:
Sorry I have 1 more note I forgot to give to u, this probably wasn't taped for tv.
Before the Main Event Penzer announced that Ms. Handcock had a message to make to the crowd she came out and said she HATED being blamed for decideing what we can and can't watch. She also said she has the mind for business but the body to party and started to strip, before W.CW. officals stopped her. DAMNO
